Hear an Unreleased Track from 'Assassin's Creed 2' and Get the Details on the New Album
Assassin’s Creed fans don't need to wait until the video game's big-screen adaptation in December to get their fix.
Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd picture disk LP will collect some of the best music from the acclaimed game series, and Heat Vision has an exclusive preview from the album.
The album features 10 tracks from composer Jesper Kyd, including two previously unheard tracks from 2009's Assassin's Creed 2. It will be available at Hot Topic stores and its website Oct. 21, while a longer version of the album, featuring 33 songs, will be available Friday on all platforms. Here is "Leonardo's Inventions," a previously unreleased track:
In addition to his work on the Ubisoft property, Kyd is also known for composing music for the Borderlands series, the Hitman series, State of Decay and Darksiders 2. His work has been credited as a key component for immersing players in the world of the games he works on.
